10 sex-positive porn sites anyone can enjoy

It’s strange how the concept of “porn sites for women” became its own genre of sexually explicit material when, frankly, the only differentiating factor between it and mainstream porn is how it portrays women and members of the LGBTQ, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming communities. This absurd schism has caused all nonviolent, sex-positive depictions of female pleasure and eroticism to be deemed only “for women,” when really this should be the foundation of all pornography.

How is mainstream porn not sex-positive?

Porn is just sex on film, so how could it not be sex-positive? To understand this, you’ll have to understand what we mean when we say sex-positivity.

In its most basic terms, sex-positivity is a social movement seeking to rewrite how people view sex by promoting open and progressive attitudes towards the act and how we approach it. For example: if a dude announces he just had a threesome or has slept with a dozen people, he’s told he “scored” and is hailed royalty. But if a grown-a$$ woman does it, she’s slut-shamed for all of eternity and bullied into believing that her vagina must be “loose” (just, no). She’s also taught to believe that she is solely responsible for her own pleasure, as well as her partner’s (*eye-roll*). It’s sexist, misogynistic double standards like these that the sex-positivity movement aims to replace with healthy, fact-based opinions.

The porn industry has profited hugely from the shame that still lingers around female sexuality, and scripted sex is often ripe with it. This continues to serve the male gaze and feeds the idea that sex is a “man’s sport” by only focusing on male pleasure, which for some reason is spearheaded by depictions of aggression and violence–but for what reason?

DJ Anderson, a biologist at the California Institute of Technology, ran a study on male mice and fruit flies and learned that reactions to both violent and sexual stimuli come from the same group of neurons. Supposing human brains work the same way, then one can assume violence and sex sell solely because of an antiquated neurological response. Despite this possibility, porn companies continue to flood the gates with depictions of aggressive and sometimes extremely violent sex–even though it’s become clear that more people than ever before are looking for sexual content where women are treated like humans rather than bags of meat.

The reason why sexist porn still exists is that profit margins are prioritized over ethics. Luckily, there’s a very simple solution to this problem–stop supporting the websites that don’t produce or source sex-positive porn. As the advertising revenue dries up with the audience, so will the idea that sex is only good if someone is coerced out of their comfort zone, denied an orgasm (but not in a hot BDSM way), or objectified. So if you’re ready to join the leagues of people looking to dethrone mainstream porn ideologies, consider supporting one of the more sex-positive agencies listed below.

Best porn sites for women (and all other gender identities, really)

1) Bellesa

porn sites for women Bellesa

If you’re familiar with Bellesa it shouldn’t come as a shock that we’ve included it the best free porn sites for women (the site’s tagline is literally “porn for women”). Founded with the intent to provide users with free erotic content that highlights female sexuality, Bellesa is your number one place to go for free porn, erotic stories, live cams, and even sex toys

Joining is free, as is most of Bellesa’s content. However, if you want access to longer porn videos or Bellesa Films you’ll have to upgrade to a paid membership.

2) Babes

porn sites for women Babes

You might not think a site called “Babes” would create porn for women, but there’s a lot you could learn about this site that may surprise you. Although most of the scenes are from the perspective of the male gaze, they’re also shot to be empowering to women–which is something the other big-name porn sites don’t even try to do. However, if you’re looking for amateur content, you’ll have to look elsewhere as Babes caters to high-quality, professional performances.

3) Brazzers 

porn sites for women Brazzers

Despite how quickly Brazzers was able to remedy the allegations of abuse by an executive (he was fired), the site still doesn’t have the best reputation amongst other top porn sites for women. And while some of the content on the site isn’t as sex-positive as we’d like it to be, Brazzers does a decent job at not putting all its eggs (porn videos) in one basket (meant for the male gaze). On the site you’ll find niche categories that you wouldn’t expect from a mainstream porn site (movie parodies, feet worship, etc.)

6) Literotica

porn sites for women Literotica

Literotica is unlike the other free porn sites for women on this list because it doesn’t put the focus on visual stimuli, but rather audio. Originally founded in 1998, Literotica is a completely free erotica hub where users from around the world can submit anything from erotic poems to novels. Over the past two decades, the site has made quite the name for itself in the online porn world as it’s practically synonymous with the term “online erotica.”

Of course, that means the site has a huge BDSM short story collection. There’s plenty to check out, from light power plays to hardcore bondage. Plus, since Literotica is centered around cultivating and supporting erotic stories, the site has an enormous catalog of short story series from years past. Look forward to multi-chapter goodness for those late nights alone.

7) Bright Desire

porn for women Bright Desire

Bright Desire considers itself “feminist porn for women and men,” and it wouldn’t be wrong. It’s a place where porn and art collide, fully capturing the ins and outs of sex–including the stuff other mainstream porn sites neglect, like intimacy, pleasure, laughter, connection, fantasy, and fun! Although the site definitely focuses on heterosexual sex, it’s working to be more inclusive by featuring a variety of adult content that includes all orientations.

8) FrolicMe

porn sites for women FrolicMe

One of the most loaded porn sites for women, men, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming folk, FrolicMe offers everything from short clips to movies, NSFW photos to audio porn, and even smut. But all this good does come with a price (literally): even though FrolicMe offers users some free content, you will have to pay for full access to videos, audio porn, full-size HD photos, and collections. However, this particular site is significantly more affordable than other premium porn sites, so as far as accessibility comes, we really can’t complain.
